Guest Designing for Craft Stampers Magazine

Hi.  I was the ecstatic winner of the Take it, Make It September Challenge
at Craft Stamper's Magazine.

So I'm a Guest Designer there today.


This card uses a technique that Karen Dunbrook shared with us.

Distress ink was rubbed directly from the inkpad on a long, narrow acrylic block,
sprayed and dragged the length of a piece of cardstock.

I repeated the process with another color.

I love the bright vibrant colors and they seemed perfect with
this Tim Holtz butterfly stamp and sentiment.

The butterfly is heat embossed to make it stand out more.

This is such a quick and fun technique!

The whole design is popped up on foam.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

A BIG CONGRATS on winning the challenge. Love the card -- butterflies are a fave of mine and that saying is just so heartfelt ..I may have to add that to my want list(!) Plus the acrylic block coloring technique of Karen's is an artistic and easy idea. Way to go, Bonnie, as always.
